So the Man in the Hat is Back...

...And I honestly can't say I'm looking forward to his return. I anticipate that this will be yet another example of how unlimited money and modern special effects can ruin an adventure film, courtesy of George Lucas.

Of course, that's not to say I won't be there. I've already oiled up my jacket and brushed off my hat.

On another note, I am unorthodox in my Indy fanboydom. I hold the obviously correct opinion that Temple of Doom is the best of the original trilogy. To those who believe The Last Crusade is best just because it has Sean Connery in it, let me refute you with the following things:

Short Round, mine cart chase, heart getting ripped out, weird chanting, rope bridge, three central characters named after dogs, PG-13 rating, monkey brains, lowering ceiling with spikes in it, volcano, human sacrifice involving a volcano, and (for the ladies) Harrison ford sans shirt. That ought to convince you.

Sigh. Yes, I'll be there for the new one. In costume. Probably at midnight. Maybe if I close my eyes and pretend it's entitled The Mummy Returns Yet Again, I can enjoy it....
